PUBLICATION – Palliative Care Staffing Model from CSPCP

The Canadian Society of Palliative Care Physicians is proud to announce publication of a paper developed by the CSPCP’s Staffing Model Working Group: Drs. Anne Boyle, David Henderson, Aleco Alexiadis, Doris Barwich, Stephanie Connidis, Leonie Herx, Dave Lysecki, and Aynharan Sinnarajah, with project support from Ms. Louise Hanvey. We hope the staffing model will be useful for palliative care programs across Canada.
